Luxottica sees first pair of glasses with Intel chips in Feb/March

MILAN (Reuters) - Italian eyewear group Luxottica expects the first pair of glasses born out of its partnership with U.S. chipmaker Intel Corp to be ready in February or March, co-Chief Executive Massimo Vian told shareholders on Friday.

Luxottica in December joined forces with Intel to target growing appetite among consumers for so-called wearable technology devices.

Vian said the “new fruit of this partnership would allow people to see, listen, even speak”. He added Luxottica continued to work on the second version of the Google Glass and was in constant contact with the CEOs of Intel and Google.
